Yesterday marked the start of West Brom’s pre-season fixtures, with the Premier League side beginning their summer with a game against French champions Paris-Saint Germain.
Whilst the Premier League minnows were not expected to get a result against the European giants, they took an unexpected lead 15 minutes into the game, courtesy of a shocking own goal from PSG defender David Luiz.
Luiz has become known for his defensive mistakes in recent years, and this one will definitely be one to forget for the former Chelsea man.
Forgetting this one might become difficult for the Luiz however, with football fans on Twitter quick to make a joke at the expensive of the Brazilian centre half.

Twitter fans also took the opportunity to mock the error-prone defender for his new choice of haircut at the same time…

David Luiz goes for the "man-bun" style this game.. Interestingly enough, he also scored an own goal. Coincidence? ???? pic.twitter.com/4JHCaEvKZc

Surely Luiz must be used to the stick that he gets on social media by now? Even so, very little compassion shown by the Twitter faithful here! Absolutely ruthless…
We think everyone is in agreement that that own goal might be one of the worst in recent memory…
